There isn’t a bigger name in college football than Deion Sanders. Colorado went from an afterthought to the most-watched team in the country overnight. There are celebrities on the sidelines, and they’re all there to see Prime Time coach the Buffaloes and Shedeur Sanders continue his bid for the Heisman.
Shedeur is his second youngest son and has been his dad’s quarterback in High School, at Jackson State, and now at Boulder. A lot of people refused to acknowledge Shedeur’s talent because of the competition level. Now, he’s considered one of the top quarterback prospects in this year’s draft class.
It’s a star-studded quarterback class — Caleb Williams, Drake Maye, Michael Penix Jr., Quin Ewers, J.J. McCarthy, Jayden Daniels, Sam Hartman, Bo Nix, etc. If Shedeur wants to enter his name in the draft, he’ll be a coveted prospect, given his dual-threat and big play ability.
Deion Sanders even made a bold statement about his boys joining the Falcons. One of the club’s scouts, Rich Sanders (no relation to Deion), said that Deion said, “We ain’t coming back unless we bringing the Sanders boys to the A.”
Shilo is a good collegiate safety who very well could carve out a career in the NFL, but Shedeur is a prospect who could be a star at the next level.
Desmond Ridder is coming off the best performance of his young career, but there’s a lot of season left. If he doesn’t continually improve, the Falcons will certainly be in the quarterback market again this offseason. Shedeur is someone that makes a lot of sense.
His skill set would marry perfectly with Arthur Smith’s offense. However, he isn’t confirmed to be coming out of college this year, so we could have to wait another year before we get Prime back in Atlanta.
